The chunkster on my Summer Reading Challenge (see post here: https://thenerdreports.wordpress.com/2012/06/15/summer-reading-challenges/) is Anna Karenina, a rather daunting read I attempted a few years ago. I was trying to figure out how I was going to tackle this one when I was on the Five Alarm Book Reviews blog and noticed an announcement for an Anna Karenina Read Along in July (see post here: http://fivealarmbookreviews.com/2012/06/12/anna-karenina-announcement-and-sign-ups/).
According to Steph over at Five Alarm, here’s how it works:
“This is summer, so we are keeping it fun and easy. There will not be any official questions, although I will post some each week if you would like to use them for conversation starters. We will each write up our thoughts on the book on the scheduled dates and link up. If you link up within a few days of the scheduled date, that is fine too.”
You DO NOT have to be a blogger to participate. You can sign up by using a link to where you will be posting. ie: Goodreads, Amazon, Shelfari, etc.
We will use the hashtag #ReadingAnnaKarenina on Twitter.
